Windows 7: Windows Photo Viewer

Windows Photo Viewer

Since installing Win7 I noticed that the scrollbar for WPV is inverted (i.e., dragging down moves the image up) and I was wondering if there was a way to change that?

Welcome to 7 Forums EpicWin7.

Sorry, I don't know of a way to change that, but seems all the scrollbars work that way. Moving the bar down in IE moves the page up. What Viewer are you using? My Win Photo Viewer has no scrollbars.

Hey Gary,
I'm using the default viewer that comes with Win7 and yeah, you technically do not see a scrollbar so I guess it is not there. I use Firefox as my default browser so I didn't notice the inverted scrollbar for IE, ha.

I guess I'll just have to get use to it. Why fix something that wasn't broken.

My photo viewer has no scrollbars either, and it's rather annoying. If I enlarge a photo to it's actual size I am unable to scroll up or down to view the image.

I downloaded Windows Live Photo Gallery in the hopes that it would have scrollbars, but no such luck.

Is this just a W7 issue, or is there a photo viewing program I can download so that I have the vertical scrollbars.

Thanks for any help,

Brian
